Back in Action.

Well, hi!  I am now a full-time graduate student at Temple University in Public History, freshly subscribed to h-public with a student membership to NCPH.  This semester, the Objects in Culture blog will focus on my work for Dr. Seth Bruggeman’s Managing History course.  We’ll be reading and chatting about public history as a discipline while also contributing to Funeral for a Home, a Pew-funded project of Temple’s Contemporary Gallery.

My M.A. thesis project is the Philadelphia Public History Truck, a mobile museum utilizing material culture and oral history to increase cultural accessibility and community connections. I’m really interested in the utilization of public history as a vehicle for place-based change making, but I remain interested in the history of midwifery and environmental preservation.  Thanks for being here.
